Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2015

    An intense and tightly knit 1er Cru. A wine full of spice and dark berry fruit. This has a linear directness, held together by its firm tannic structure and sweetly intense dark forest fruit flavours. This will age very well.

    From the parcel purchased in 2009, the 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru les Gruenchers has a refined and sophisticated, mineral-driven nose that fans out beautifully with aeration. The palate is elegant and refined with filigree tannin, a killer line of acidity, immense precision and length. This could be one of the domaine's outstanding wines of the vintage -- magnifique! Drink 2017-2035

    A ripe and appealingly nuanced nose is composed of notes of plum, spiced cherry and once again plenty of floral nuances. The energetic and rich flavors don’t quite have the refinement of the Charmes though there is a bit more mid-palate volume and I like the focus of the detailed and moderately austere finale. The supporting tannic spine is sufficiently firm that this will need all of a decade to mature. Drink 2024+

    It is I find this has a more complex aroma than Charmes. There is fruit and spice. It is lifted and ripe…even a touch exotic. Lovely texture, satin smooth and refined. It ripples elegantly. the palate is very nicely woven. A ribbon of fresh fruit. A long and elegant and pure finish…If the Charmes slightly underwhelmed, this exceeds expectations. Drink from 2019

Producer

Domaine Ghislaine Barthod

Exquisitely pure, ethereal, and terroir-driven, Ghislaine’s wines also have wonderful mineral raciness. The domaine was originally created by Marcel Noëllat, Ghislaine’s maternal grandfather. After attending viticultural college in Beaune in the 1980s, she began assisting her father, Gaston Barthod, at the family domaine. Her straightforward, no-nonsense approach helped introduce a sorting table, extended lees contact, a gentle cold soak before fermentation, and domaine bottling. All this enabled greater control over the quality of fruit, texture of tannins, and purity of flavours. The results have been year upon year of magical masterpieces from Chambolle Musigny. Along with her partner Louis Boillot, today she is joined in the vineyard and cellar by their son, Clément.

Region

Chambolle-Musigny

The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
